The Perfect Christmas Cocktail

A recipe from The Sideline Bar

Cocktails in The River Lee Sideline Bar

Are you hosting a Christmas gathering this year? Do you wish you had something a little bit more festive to offer up as a drink? Or do you just want to mix yourself up something to enjoy by the fire, while you watch a Christmas movie?

Christmas cocktail with fire eater liqueur

Well, the bar staff at The Croke Park have you covered. While their cocktail menu is always filled with fabulous options, this year they have developed a particularly festive concoction. The Stilt Walker is the perfect choice if you love the fiery buzz of cinnamon, with rich, almondy undertones and a little citrusy hit.

It’s easy to make at home – you just need Fire Eater Cinnamon Liqueur, a feisty and powerful whiskey laced with cinnamon. Here’s the recipe…

Stilt Walker

  • 35ml Fire Eater Cinnamon Liqueur
  • 15ml Amaretto / Disaronno
  • 35ml Orange Juice
  • 35ml Pineapple Juice

Shake with ice and strain in to a chilled stem glass. Garnish with a sprinkling of cinnamon powder and a mint leaf.

If you’d rather someone else do the mixing, head into The Croke Park for a festive drink. The Christmas decorations are spectacular, and there’s no better place to get into the Christmas spirit than in The Sideline Bar, on a deep leather couch beside the fireplace. Add on a couple of nibbles from the bar menu and you’ll be happily ensconced in a cosy, festive bubble.
